Carpet is, by square footage, the most specified and installed commercial floor covering. Health care facilities, Law Offices, Retail Outlets, Hotels, Motels, Casino’s, Universities, Private Schools and General office facilities are a few examples of business ‘s preferring carpet over other flooring choices. Carpet is the most slip-resistant of all flooring choices as well as quieter and maintenance cost effective.

Raveling, pulls, snags, carpet tiles cupping are not only indications of installation or sub-floor defects, but also manufacturing defects.
Conversely, there are situations considered to be material defects from the perspective of the end user or installer.

In many cases a viable recommendation can be made to correct the issues, in others an educated explanation of cause and effect can resolve the concerns.
